Once Upon a Time Blair Babylon Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

When a modern princess falls in love with her bodyguard, a royal fairy tale turns dangerous.

ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a beautiful princess. Flicka von Hannover lived an enchanted life. She jetted around Europe staging charity events with friends, had married a handsome prince in the most spectacular royal wedding of the 21st century, and should have lived happily ever after.

But then she found the handsome prince in bed with a duchess. And then a coffee shop barista. And then her own goddamn secretary.

Finally, the beautiful princess had had enough of the cheating prince, and she ran away.

The prince didn’t want to let her go. He couldn’t take his throne without her and sent henchmen to take her back to the castle. Her worried royal brother sent people to look for her, too.

The prince threatened her. He said that if the princess contacted her brother or any of her friends for help, he would kill her brother and her brother’s new, pregnant wife.

So the princess ran to the only person she could trust, a man who was frankly not a handsome prince.

Dieter Schwarz had been Flicka’s bodyguard for years. He had protected her from assassins, kidnappers, and high school dates who got too handsy after a few drinks. He was a sharp-witted, sharp-jawed, hard-muscled former Swiss Special Forces operator who had started his own private security firm, Rogue Security, and had no past that he spoke of.

No one knew that he had been her first lover and had broken her heart.

And he’s the only person who can save her.

    This crap is exactly like some other crap I read a few months ago. I wouldn't have gone for this in middle school, yet it's being marketed to adults. Ewww

    But it ends on a cliffhanger and the pacing is off. I love stories about royalty and she did a good job with the world building but too many things made me stop. Not going to buy the next books.

    I have been a reader of Blair Babylon's books from the very beginning. Her ability to weave her character's complicated lives in such a believable fashion is amazing. Her series of books are intertwined with each other, yet can be read as standalone without a problem. This is the first series that is a cliffhanger, but as mentioned in other reviews, the next book is scheduled to be released next month (and yes, it is already ordered!). Sexy, with great feeling and passion, the story of Flicka, her Serene Highness Fredericka of Hanover is told. Another can't miss read..... And I can't wait for the next book.
  • Another wonderful tale from a great author

    I received an ARC of this book because Blair is really my favorite author and the only one that I consistently write reviews for. Oh my, Blair writes her characters SO well, I always take them as my friends and miss them when they are gone. Here, we finally get Flicka AND Dieter's story. The mysterious Dieter. I'm sure somewhere in one of the following books we'll find his secret past, but now we can only wonder. Poor Flicka, so busy organizing things for others while smiling like a princess should, through all the misery. Finding that her new husband has another 'wife' and kids soon after her own wedding, and loving Dieter who married another after he broke up with her. Life certainly can be complicated, especially if you are royalty and must do your duty. Will Flicka and Dieter get together in the next book 'Knight in Shining Armor', or will there be more twists and turns before a happily ever after? I can't wait to find out.
